Wrestlers also wear heel-less shoes with flexible soles that extend past the ankle. The laces must be covered for safety reasons. Headgear is also required, especially in youth wrestling, to protect the ears from damage. Adult wrestlers are usually not required to wear headgear during matches. Other accessories that may be required as part of a wrestling uniform include mouth guards and head coverings to keep long hair under control.
